It was a good day to take photographs but if I remember correctly very windy.
Heading South down the Solent the week before it was incredibly windy and I remember having to hang onto my daughter to stop her being blown across the deck. I enjoy going to the Isle of Wight, we have been five times since 2008 staying mostly at a caravan site in East Cowes overlooking the Solent (a great place to sit in the evening and watch the ships go by with a beer) and also in the heart of the countryside in our tent (not so good to watch the ships go by!). I find the place relaxing and particularly on the East Coast there are some nice seaside towns (Sandown and Shanklin) with good beaches and pubs, many having a nautical theme where you can get good food and see the ships come and go. The weather seems better than the mainland too.
